Will Harris Back Off Board

It's been a long road of twists and turns for Will Harris, but the New York native, who is spending the year at Brewster Academy (N.H.), has signed a letter of intent.

Will Harris, a 6-foot-6 post-grad at Brewster Academy (N.H.) who recently re-opened his recruitment after committing to UConn, signed with Virginia on Tuesday.

``The biggest thing to me was that Coach (Dave) Leitao was in contact with me a lot," Harris said. "That was the biggest part – the head coach was aggressive and really wanted me."

``He was really impressed with the fact that once he decommitted from UConn, Virginia's interest was immediate," Brewster coach Jason Smith added. "Coach (Dave) Leitao was the main recruiter and developed a relationship with Will."

Harris said he also considered Georgia, Memphis and Providence.

``I loved the campus – it was wonderful," Harris said. "The staff was great and so were the players on the team. I see myself playing there a lot."
